Setting Up a CronJob via Cpanel
Cronjobs are very usefull to automate various tasks like updating a mysql database once a day or multiple times, etc. Web Hosts based on Unix, offer this feature of task scheduling.
First step is to go to your cPanel, scroll down and click Cronjobs : there’ll be two options – advanced style – and – simple -. You guessed, we’ll go to the simple way and setup for example a task to put a browser called “lynx” using -dump command to visit a specific URL at an estabilished time. Ignore the last synthax which will tell to the cron to not send the output result anywhere.
